Chicago has been named number one for bed bugs once again...gross.
The city has once again held its crown as the city with the most bed bugs for a third consecutive year, according to Orkin's Top 50 Bed Bug Cities List.
Released on Monday, the list shows New York and Philadelphia in second and third place, respectively. This remains consistent with the company's 2022 findings.
Some cities saw massive jumps over the past year. Los Angeles (#5) is one, rising seven spots and into the top five. Cleveland (#4) and Raleigh (#20) both moved up four spots in the rankings.
Nearby Champaign, Illinois, also climbed the list, moving from No. 13 last year to No. 11. Peoria, Illinois, however, did the opposite. The city moved down three spots from last year, ranking No. 48 on the 2023 list.
Having dealt with bed bugs before...I can't. Ugh.
